Making Jewelry Can be Really Easy: Create Your Own Chunky Bead Necklace August 15, 2019 21:46

I've introduced four new shapes in the collections this year. The links might be a little challenging to work with so I wanted to give some simple ideas about how to design with these beads.
 
 
 The necklace below is comprised of the following:
  1. Swirled Seaside Links
  2. Caribbean Green Faceted Rounds
  3. 18 or 20 gauge copper wire
  4. copper rolo chain 
  5. waxed cotton cord
The tools I showed are my bare minimum basic tools that I use for making jewelry, a round chain nose pliers, a flat chain nose pliers and a flush cutter. With just some creative knotting of the cotton core and simple wirewrapping, you can create your own chunky necklace!
